Our training philosophy is simple – perform basic movements well. Movement quality is our top priority. We focus on the details to improve exercise effectiveness and make them safer.
Let’s take a deadlift for example. We teach our clients to take the slack out of the bar (create tension) before they lift it – this prepares your body to handle the weight. It’s a small detail that can make a big difference.
Elbow position in a push up is another great example. Keeping your elbows close to your side creates a stable shoulder. This cue is important for those with cranky shoulders. Pain can prevent someone from performing an exercise – the details make movements feel better.
We want our clients to get the most out of their training. The details within each exercise require attention and we love to talk about them.
Movement is a skill that requires practice. We will always prioritize technique over intensity. Moving with intent is more important than the weight on the bar. It will lead to more consistent progress and help you feel better.
